Well, it was a beautiful day in the Pacific Northwest - sunshine, 60 degrees or so with calm water.

A perfect day for a little boat photography and a couple test runs.

I tested the Circus Circus with a 3 blade prop and I think it is ready for racing, or at least race testing around a course. It gets up on plane, the motor sounds about right, no excess water spray, and the rooster tail looks about right.

We tested the Beacon Plumbing over the weekend, and it needs tuning. The boat was VERY light in the nose and while the water was a tad choppy it was just too light. It will need some strut adjustments along with some battery repositioning.

The American Dream just had a very short test, but it hopped right up on plane and was smooth and fast. It is ready for a race course test as well.

The first race test day is 4 weeks away ... I am excited.
